JOOHEON – DWTD Album First Listen + Review

After what feels like years and years, we finally have a mixtape from Jooheon. While I do like this current direction from him, I can’t help but be a little sad we didn’t get a mixtape from his last solo “Rhythm” – both styles are completely different yet I can’t help but be more drawn to the aggressive and darker version he brought to the table with “Rhythm”. In saying that – boy am I happy a mixtape even exists!

SUNMI – WARNING Album First Listen + Review

After finally listening to “Siren” my excitement for Warning has grown exponentially. Since the release of “Gashina” I’ve been wanting an album. When “Heroine” was released I wanted an album. Now, we finally get one, albeit only small. I’m not too sure how the album’s going to relate to those two earlier releases – I’m assuming they’ll be cohesive considering they’re both on this album. Oh, I’m just so excited to listen to it!

BTS – LOVE YOURSELF 結 ‘Answer’ Album Review + Breakdown

Okay, okay. I know, I know. BTS had a comeback and I haven’t said shit about it. I have zero excuses and zero need to explain myself for this. What I will do is outline what this post is going to be about.

Yes, I have obviously seen “Idol” and listened to the album – there will be no MV First Look or Album First Listen for this era. This post is going to be an overview of the songs individually as well as collectively. My first impressions of the songs are no longer valid, I’ve listened to them too many times to have maintained my initial reactions to them. Feel free to keep reading this post though I’m sure a lot of you will already know how I feel about these songs, but for those of you who are just nosey, keep reading!
